Who's Call is Greater?
This time it was thinking about if one call is greater than another...
It started at the Chris Tomlin/TobyMac concert we went to at the Indy state fair. I think you've all heard me say how great it was, but as I was standing there worshiping with a few thousand of my closest friends, I started thinking. Always the start of trouble. It went along the lines of this:
What could be cooler than having a calling like Chris Tomlin? Think about it...going around the world to usher people into the presence of God. Wow! And I suppose if I'm honest, somewhere in there was the next thought. Wish I had a calling like that...
Perfect opportunity for God to get my attention. And over the next few days I started thinking about how flawed that idea was. Yes, Chris Tomlin has an awesome calling. But God has something awesome for each of us. But it's unique to each of us. So if I take my calling lightly or shortcount it because it's not cool enough (in my mind), then I am missing God's call for my life. And that's His best for ME.
After all, isn't that where I want to be? In the center of His will for MY life.
